Active Measures chronicles the most successful espionage operation in Russian history: the American presidential election of 2016. Filmmaker Jack Bryan exposes a 30-year history of covert political warfare devised by Vladimir Putin to disrupt, and ultimately control, world events. In the process, the filmmakers follow a trail of money, real estate, mob connections, and on-the-record confessions to expose an insidious plot that leads directly back to The White House.
